Ideal for beginners, this workshop will introduce you to the materials and methods of building a small scale wooden box—from stock selection, through joinery, assembly, and fit and finish. Instruction will address design considerations integral to woodwork including grain graphics, designing for humidity cycling, scale and proportion in relation to durability, among other issues. Students will leave the workshop with a finished box, skills to design and build like objects, and an understanding of the considerations integral to a whole trope of woodworking. All tools and supplies included in lab fee. Students should wear closed-toe shoes.
